and choose all of your unelectable candidates wing of the party. that is karl rove. here's how rove explained his election experience. >> i was involved in a group called american crossroads. it's the worst volunteer job i've had in my life. i was in charge of raising money. we raised $324 million, and i got sick and tired of spending money in races where the moderates and the conservatives had gone at each other and made victory impossible. >> rove has said he wants to reorient crossroads and some reporting says he's going to do that by beginning to intervene in primaries where jim demint-like strategies are being carried out. in fact, already even though it has been less than a month since the election, crossroads is coming to the defense of shelley moore capito, thinking of challenging rockefeller in 2014. some have been attacking her as not conservative enough for the seat. crossroads president steven law told politico, quote, it is distasteful to see washington politicos clubbing republican candidates right out of the gate, especially ones with the guts to challenge an entrenched incumbe
the focus is on strategy, right? carl rove is now channelling the spirit of howard dean. let's actually take a listen, because it's not often carl rove praises howard dean, so we should let everybody hear that. >> i hate to say it, but we need to copy what howard dean did, that means make our ground game in all 50 states. >> the problem is you're going to have to have some kind of proposal in terms of appealing to voters in arizona or in north carolina if you're going to try to change your margins in those states, sam. thus far, i think the recommendations from party elders have been purely strategy. 50-state strategy talking about shrinking the length of the primary calendar, moving the convention up. is that how you set the gop on a course to right itself for 2016? >> probably not. i mean, it's tactical and superficial fixes, obviously. one of the things that worked for howard dean, keep in mind, not that he had two or three staffers in mississippi, because that wasn't going to change the contrast of the races there for the democratic party. it was that he had obama, a candidate who had a
in terms of getting the economy back on track. >> that is the potential next stance. carl rove karl rove is going to stay in this game. he's got five different radio ads, each putting pressure on specific senators in those states to reach what cross rows calls a balanced solution to the nation's debt. this one is airing in north carolina. take a listen. >> balanced, comprehensive and good for our economy, not like president obama's one sided plan. both parties helped create the mess in washington. both parties should work together to clean it up. >> both parties created the mess, both sides should clean it up. is this the more conservatives among the gop getting ready to put the blame on democrats if the deal doesn't get done? >> well, yes, that would be one way to put it. i'm interested that karl rove says that the republicans seem to have a balanced plan. actually president obama is putting -- has been putting forward a balanced plan, spending and revenue increases for a long time. he's also done something very smart, which is put the republican tons defensive, unlike the beginning in
able to connect the karl rove moment -- infamous karl rove moment of denial to romney's campaign's decision not to concede. there is an unknown character here that caused all sorts of delays. tell me about it. >> there was basically for over an hour a pause in the romney campaign's high command in boston -- >> because they were about to concede. right? they were all ready to go. >> political junkies out there who go to amazon and get this book will love the opening scene. we have the suite in boston at the westin on the 16th floor. and the chicago suite where the president is. sort of back and forth on election night what's going on. romney was ready to concede at 11:15. ten minutes later karl rove is on fox news saying hold on, you're calling ohio too soon. what we found out, chuck, is that both carl at the fox studio in new york but also the romney campaign in boston was talking to the same person, scott jennings, who is romney's ohio campaign director who was hold up at a hotel in columbus. he was hitting refresh on the state and county board of elections websites. he sees two
. >> the donald trump award goes to? >> my trump award goes to karl rove, on election night, on politics, election night he had no idea what was going on. and on policy, this was the year when we really saw the public turn against his enduring legacy of trying to write state legislation into the constitution against people who happen to be gay. and the republican party is turning against that. and that will be his legacy for a long time, sadly in the legislative issue. >> and for years, i've said the donald trump award has gone to donald trump. and once again i will give it to donald trump because i find it impossible to outdo donald trump on embarrassing yourself. there are a couple of people who tried, they tried really hard to outdo donald trump. let's take a look, for example, at todd aken. >> first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that is really rare, if it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> and just when you thought he had that whole jurisdiction wrapped up, there came richard murdoch, who we should take a look at. >> i think t
with this plant in janesville. >> uh-huh. >> but it was very gratified to see karl rove thrown off of the balcony, oh that was a saturday night sketch. >> stephanie: yes. we'll have to leave it there. >> i have to leave it there. >> stephanie: right. the main stream jacki's old buddy wolf. >> that's right. >> stephanie: we have to leave it there before the liberal gets a chance to refute. >> we have to leave it there! >> although paul was always good about not letting wolf shut him down. >> stephanie: yeah. i can't recall a campaign i have seen more lying going on and it wasn't semietric. almost every ad had lies in it. mitt romney in particular weren't limited to the tv ads either. he willfully disregarded the truth. remember the republicans complained about this report and they just issued it and it says the same thing. blah blah blah. it was the great unreported big story of this last election cycle. they say it's hard to exaggerate just how popular mann and ornstein were with the press before they started talking about this. he said it's awkward, i can't be a s
work stream. more out of touch of where the american people are. governor, carl rove was with bill o'riley. watch this. >> i think what the speaker is trying to get across is at this point, the republicans are pretty much in disarray. they can't compete with the organized democratic machine. that's why romney lost. >> they are in disarray. they doept have a clue of what to do. they're not in any way consistent with what they want. they want taxes raised on the rich. it spurred 23.5 million new jobs in six years. americans get that stuff. they've got to be voiced and sustained. by the way, all of this is political calculation. crystal is right. they're worried about the primary. good lord, have some guts and do what's right for america. president obama has put a 45-page plan out, 27 pages of spending cuts in his plan. now, is that not enough for republicans? negotiate that. >> now, a new analysis was put out, crystal, by gop strategist with heirs is getting some attention. it describes the gop as a regional party with few national pros pekts. and it says republicans have run out of pe
radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: karl rove accuses commerce secretary john bryson >> bill: a lot of talk about gun control. will we see any action this time? good morning everybody. what do you say? good to see you today. it is tuesday december 18. this is the "full court press." we're coming to you live from washington, d.c. hope you're off to a good start wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. obviously i'm not. and it is great to see you. invite you to join the conversation any time by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. or sending us a little tweet message on twitter at bpshow. we're following you at bpshow. and on facebook. facebook.com/billpressshow here in our nation's capital. there is word that after president obama and speaker boehner met yesterday at the white house in the oval office for some 45 minutes there is word that they're getting closer to a deal. i was out for dinner last night when i got a quick text from the white house saying president
to be years before they can erase the sting of 2004. when karl rove sin cli used gay marriage to rally votes against the mitt romney of the democratic party of 2004. they're going to have to come out from behind that. you do that by playing defense and not offense. you say big government policies force us to do things against our values. and that's what we don't want. we don't want to impose anything going forward. they have to make that switch. they haven't yet. they have to. >> it feels to me like it breaks down on the issue of women's reproductive rights. on this question of big government. you'll hear what we want is small government, right, small enough as is our joke, on a transvaginal probe as we saw in the context of bob mcdonnell. yet, this blew me away. the quinnipiac poll off bob mcdonnell's approval rating. he's actually doing quite well with women, quite well with african-americans, quite well with young people. this is the guy who proposed the transvaginal ultrasound procedures in virginia. am i missing something here? >> voters are not -- again, that whole single issue, you ca
. this is big guns. host: and h. robert asks -- host: back to the column by karl rove in while "the wall street journal." guest: speaker boehner is a very decent guy. he believes in compromise. he is reasonable. we tried to make republicans into a character as if they are insensitive and do not care about the less fortunate. i know people like to go back to the rear their comments with mitch mcconnell said their goal was to make sure the president does not succeed. the president has won again. we need to work. there are people that do not know how they will meet their mortgage or rent obligation. they didn't know how they will pay their medicine. there will compromise about getting a meal a day or to pay for their medicine. there are real issues. people have to decide if they have enough money to pay for gas. these politicians have the best benefit packages and sometimes have lost touch with the everyday common people. we have to address the real issues that americans are facing. we all have been diminished in this economy. host: we have a tweet from jim buck. mason in ohio, please go ahead wit
would have never allowed that to happen. >> no way. >> would karl rove have allowed that to happen? would you have allowed that to happen. >> come on, dan bartlett. >> man up! >> this is a little off topic but on topic, i don't understand what's wrong with our country and ford. i love ford. i have an f-150. i love that ford. huge pickup, guzzles gas, but buyers are falling in love, rattner. it's the raptor 411 horsepower v8 riding atop big wheel oversized tires. it's making new fans for its performance in ice, snow, rocky hill tops and roaring over desert dunes. we have a lot of those in america. apparently it's selling off the shelves. it's $44,000 starting price, double the f-150. the gas mileage is awful. it's awful. >> what is it? >> 11 miles per gallon in the city. what's wrong with people? what's wrong with companies? i don't get it. this is 1978. >> we were driviere driving aroy on the turnpike. >> the stupidist thing i've seen. >> actually pickups are not selling well. >> apparently that is. >> this one is selling well. >> why are they even making it, steve? >> it's america
about cutting spending before coming to us for more money. gregg: you know what, doug? karl rove wrote an op-ed in "the wall street journal" which he basically says, the president think it is all about him. the more mr. obama makes everything about him, the more stubborn he is likely to be when flexibility would be better. success requires adjustments, including a greater willingness to compromise and seek common ground with his opposition. fair point? >> oh, i think it is a fair point. i think it is a fair point on both sides. we had a framework that did what terry described. it was called bowles-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it i
